My Secret Life (or why real life is like high school)

I’m singing out loud. We were the kings and the queens of PROMIIIIISEEE…The windows are down and  outside the sun is shining, the sky is a bright happy blue.  This IS how a Monday should be.  And I’m singing along to Jared Leto, whom I will forever think of as

Claire Danes and Jared Leto in My So Called Life

My So Called Life

Jordan Catalano. Hah…my mind drifts. Jordan Catalano — going by my penchant for teen things Twilight, Glee and stuff I secretly watch on ABC Family (Cappie- swoon!) you’d think inside of me there was a teenage girl — but it’s always been this way. I was in my 20s when I devoured everything on the WB before it became CW – hello, Gilmore Girls? (Identifying more with Rory than Lorelei).  It’s weird. But then, it’s not really when you realize life is a lot like High School –  just consider the mamas on the PTA or the parents at pick-up time in school. There are your stereotypes… and cliques.

So what’s the difference between High School and the Real World? I dunno – the responsibilities that come with it? The maturity and the intelligence to NOT judge people, to break the stereotypes, to expand our circles…. Yes, yes…

But for now let me escape in my 30 seconds to Mars….
